Ha, do I have more than you now? I have abandoned MJPassages, rellay. The intention of that one was especially to take many of the series of posts I had done and various topical categories and arrange things.I will someday soon start making mini eBooks out of blog series and offer them dirt cheap for people with eReaders. That may be a better way. It could be worth 49 cents to have the whole text of a series like Non-Jews and Torah available on one's computer or eReader or 99 cents for a host of articles on the topic of the Jewish context of Yeshua's life.Yes, the number of sites gets overwhelming at times. But I have to say that the many people I converse with by email and social media shows me that there are many thousands out there who want some context in the Bible reading and practice. I just wish I had a full-time assistant or something!Derek Leman
